A- Crystal clear golden yellow body to a pint glass with a thick frothy white cap. Good head retention and lacing is spotty.

S- Pale cereal grains for the most part with some big lager funk, lemon zest and pale fruits.

T- Again mostly the pale cereal grains and some bread. Pale fruits like apple and white grapes. Lemon zest again even a bit tart all leading into lager funk.

MF- Very light and thinned out body with high end carbonation. Texture is just a bit foamy and frothy.

A decent lager. Drinkable but some lager funk comes out as well as a random lemon tarts.

Briefly, all to style for Euro Pale Lager, save a really quite watery mouthfeel, and a unusual lemon zest flavour note, making it come across as more like shandy with lemonade added.

Won't try again, but at least I can say I have had an Icelandic beer.... hmmm...
